Lindstrom & Prins Thomas are the shit

Thought these guys deserved their own thread, there seems to be only a little discussion of them here.

So who else is really feeling these guys lately? "I Feel Space" seems to only be the tip of the iceberg, like Primal Scream's "Loaded", pre-Screamadelica. Between the new album on Eskimo, the "Tribulations" remix and the new Six Cups of Rebel (Lindstrom), dudes are killin it. i'm listening to Six Cups now and the willingness to just let it go plus the production, the instrumentation are so freeing to me. The album sounds like a disco-fied Neu! at times and this whole krautrock vibe is a direction i would love to see this going in. I find myself more than willing to go where they're taking me. Further blowing me away is the PT remix of Mental Overdrive's "Diskodans" on Smalltown Supersound (which needs to be released on vinyl right now, god damn it) - mindblowing 9 minute uptempo mix, just filthy with effects - and Lindstrom's "Plague the Kid II" on Bear Entertainment.

Now I've heard Lindstrom's previous work under the Slow Supreme moniker, and i've enjoyed and even spun out a couple of his tracks. but this, this is different.

who's wit me?!

I've only heard "I Feel Space", but it's my favorite house track in months.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 26 August 2005 06:35 (fifteen years ago) link

what's the deal with the new album on eskimo? i remember hearing about it a few months ago, but nothing more. but everything else i've heard by them is indeed the shit. "there's a drink in my bedroom and i need a hot lady" especially.

rajeev (rajeev), Friday, 26 August 2005 06:45 (fifteen years ago) link

Lindstrom/Prins Thomas remix of Juan Maclean 'Tito's Way' is awesome in a Disco-Prog kind of way.

Barnaby (Barnaby), Friday, 26 August 2005 07:57 (fifteen years ago) link

their remixes of Chicken Lips "Sweet Cow" and the Freeform Five's "Electromagnetic" are very good too.

Ronan (Ronan), Friday, 26 August 2005 08:57 (fifteen years ago) link

Album comes out 14 November. Faves so far:

1 Lindstrøm - "Paaskelyd"
2 Lindstrøm - "Er Bestemor Paa Moten"
3 Blackbelt Andersen Vs Prins Thomas - "Juling i Ringen"
4 Lindstrøm - "Drums of Life"
5 Lindstrøm - "I Feel Space"

JoB (JoB), Friday, 26 August 2005 09:04 (fifteen years ago) link

I couldn't remember the name of that Blackbelt Andersen thing, yeah it's great!

I'm not norwegian but I think this is what the titles are in english:
1.Paaskelyd = Eastersounds
2.Er Bestemor Paa Moten = Is grandmother at a meeting
3.Juling i Ringen = Doing cartwheels in the ring

silkworm, Friday, 26 August 2005 14:03 (fifteen years ago) link

Lindbaek And Lindstrom: Alien In My Pocket is one of my favorites. I had no idea there was an album in the works, I can't wait to hear it.

jeffery (jeffery), Friday, 26 August 2005 14:12 (fifteen years ago) link

the album is fantastic, if not as uptempo and fully dancefloor as, say, Thomas' Major Swellings album that was released recently on Noid with the Idjut Boys. Listened to as a whole, it's a superb trip through a more laidback vibe. loving loving loving it. it's due out within another month or so - i got solicited on it maybe a month ago and that was way way in advance. question for someone more knowledgeable: is this the same album that was released in japan earlier in the year?

if the tribulations remix link is still active in the most recent YSI thread, go download it immediately. the bit in the middle where the distorted vocal starts stuttering and then the beat drops underneath is fucking devastating.

i hope there are plans to repress bits and pieces like 'alien in my pocket' because i NEED them. i'm in full lindstrom obsession mode at this point!

heywood jablomi (heywood), Friday, 26 August 2005 21:38 (fifteen years ago) link

btw if you're on Oink you can get the album right this second...
job OTM with "paaskelyd"...

heywood jablomi (heywood), Friday, 26 August 2005 21:40 (fifteen years ago) link

what's the name of the full-length?

rajeev (rajeev), Friday, 26 August 2005 22:21 (fifteen years ago) link

Lindstrøm (from Norway)

jed_ (jed), Friday, 26 August 2005 22:28 (fifteen years ago) link

think alot of the records got repressed heywood, at least we got alot of the older feedelity stuff back in on vinyl, I've not seen "alien in my pocket" yet though.

Ronan (Ronan), Saturday, 27 August 2005 09:12 (fifteen years ago) link

Amazon sez it's just Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas.

JoB (JoB), Saturday, 27 August 2005 18:28 (fifteen years ago) link

i just found them through their set on Beats-In-Space - which is great. and their own tracks seem really elegant yet meaty too.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 17:13 (fifteen years ago) link

m.a.n.d.y. remix of "i feel space" out this week!

tricky (disco stu), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 17:18 (fifteen years ago) link

i should say the tracks they've remixed instead of "their own tracks". i don't think i've heard any of their original stuff. from their set, the remix of Manuel Gottsching - E2-E4 is super.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 17:55 (fifteen years ago) link

This album is amazing!

I'm not really in the loop with this genre. What would you call it? Trip-house? It's crazy. What else would one check out if they really like this?

For frame of reference, I've also really enjoyed the Isolee record and the Vitalic. I checked all three of these out based on ILM threads.

Brooker Buckingham (Brooker B), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 18:22 (fifteen years ago) link

check out some Reverso 68, not exactly precisely the same but on a similar tip. "Piece Together" and their remixes of Juan Maclean "Tito's Way" and Bent "Coming Back" in particular.

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 18:42 (fifteen years ago) link

anyone heard this? i held it in my hands this afternoon but unfortunately didn't have the time to listen to it... the soundclip sure sounds pretty

willem (willem), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 18:54 (fifteen years ago) link

What else would one check out if they really like this?

Idjut Boys, Kango's Stein Massiv, maybe some Maurice Fulton stuff.

JoB (JoB), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 20:16 (fifteen years ago) link

Plus that Beatservice comp I plugged upthread.

JoB (JoB), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 20:17 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah Willem I bought it recently. The Lindstrom mix is a bit Love Boat disco party as opposed to their usual stuff but the Linus Loves one is really nice.

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 20:26 (fifteen years ago) link

What else would one check out if they really like this?

idjut boys!! chicken lips!!

maurice fulton - yes, but not MU, you should start w/ "life is water for gerbadaisies..." (recorded as "maurice fulton presents boof") and the album recorded as "maurice fulton presents stress"). also maurice's remixes.

possibly the earlier faze action ... anything before moving cities, really. also look for ray mang's work.

some of the artists on bunker and creme. a lot of it is lo-fi techno, so you sort of have to pick and choose but there's quite a bit of loose-limbed italo funk in there.

vahid (vahid), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 21:30 (fifteen years ago) link

metro area and morgan geist would be two more.

other environ artists like daniel wang and kelley polar

trentemoller

and, oh yeah ... DETROIT TECHNO

vahid (vahid), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 21:50 (fifteen years ago) link

that's actually helpful

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 22:01 (fifteen years ago) link

the trentemoller i've heard (a lot) is nothing like lindstrom and prins thomas though unless i'm missing some really specific track...naked music style house is really the other side of the divide here i think.

tricky (disco stu), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 22:36 (fifteen years ago) link

All you recommendorz roolz.

Brooker Buckingham (Brooker B), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 22:37 (fifteen years ago) link

-- tricky (tricky@), August 31st, 2005 4:36 PM. (disco stu)

yeah, i think tricky is right. i was making recommends based on the singles / compilation tracks i've heard ... just slsked some of the album and it's MUCH more downtempo than i was expecting.

SORRY BAD RECOMMENDATIONS

(ok they are recommendations for GOOD music but not really in the same vein as lindstrom)

i was a little dissappointed in "I Feel Space". i think i may dig the prins thomas side of things more. is Lindstrom on his own, more House-y? hi phil

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Thursday, 1 September 2005 19:08 (fifteen years ago) link

those recent Emperor Machine tunes on DC are a bit similar if not darker.
check the recent Stranger & Shortbus 12" on Dis-Joint out of SF...

been dying to hear that E2-E4 mix -- they've done a full-length version haven't they?


heywood jablomi (heywood), Thursday, 1 September 2005 20:15 (fifteen years ago) link

e2-e4 is the last track of their July 14th guest dj session on Beats-in-Space...can't remember how much they play/don't know the original...so...but what's there is really really nice. thx for the ysi link.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Thursday, 1 September 2005 20:33 (fifteen years ago) link

I'll take sueno latino instead!

but in this topic...I hadn't heard emperor machine untill the recent simian mobile disco mix. I like that a lot.

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:16 (fifteen years ago) link

God, there's a mix of "Sueno Latino" I've never found on CD that's the same as most of the original mixes but has this electric guitar solo in the middle of it that just sounds incredible (and still Mediterranean).

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:19 (fifteen years ago) link

Emperor Machine "Bloody Hell" is my favourite of theirs.

Also check out Padded Cell on Suicide Recordings, they've done a few remixes here and there too. Very good stuff.

Ronan (Ronan), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:21 (fifteen years ago) link

the lindstrom / prins tomas lp on eskimo is very down tempo / jazz funk. i think they felt it should be an albu for listening to rather than a set of club tracks.

lindstrom tends to have two sides to his sound - the tripped out space disco and the noodly muso side. the 'i feel space' 12' demonstrates this to a t (which incidentally he recorded four years ago).

he has a forthcoming 12' coming called 'serious syntoms' which is the rawest thing he's ever done. endlessly repeating, slighty modulating moog bassline, live snare and hi hat and a bit of arp synth. sounds like it was recorded live in one take. mega.

i spent a very drunken night out with prins thomas recently and i get the impressiont that what we have heard so far is only the tip of the iceberg. mad, as they both have families and other jobs to keep them busy too.

stirmonster (stirmonster), Thursday, 1 September 2005 22:14 (fifteen years ago) link

one of my favourite tracks of the year Nemesi - "Cosmica(Lindstrom and Prins Thomas mix)"

jed_ (jed), Friday, 2 September 2005 00:34 (fifteen years ago) link

"endlessly repeating, slighty modulating moog bassline, live snare and hi hat and a bit of arp synth." -- i'm already excited about this (or atleast what you're describin)

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Friday, 2 September 2005 00:43 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah that description has me drooling.

out this week: "i feel space" m.a.n.d.y. remix on playhouse
and lindstrom & prins thomas remixes (vocal and instrumental) of silver city on 20/20 vision...

heywood jablomi (heywood), Friday, 2 September 2005 16:10 (fifteen years ago) link

i listened to (what i think is) the e2-e4 section again last nite from the set...its hard to say where it begins or ends - I think he's weaving other songs in and out - or perhaps its just a short snippet.

anyway, "Call Me Mr. Telephone"-- is awesome if folks haven't heard. They seems to be heavily influenced by 70's rock but not in a gimmicky way??? he goes kinda fleetwood mac in the middle of that song but its totally nice.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Friday, 2 September 2005 16:35 (fifteen years ago) link

i'm not much of a fan of that m.a.n.d.y. remix. although that's probably because the original is so amazing.

I listened to the first 50mins or so on my commute this morning and I got most of the way to the office before I heard anything approaching a beat, all multilayered ambient soundscapes but absolutely gorgeous on headphones. Looks like it might perk up on the second and third discs.

I like the track that was released off the new Lindstrom. Looking forward to it. Moving to all live instruments plus drum machines seems like a logical evolution for him.

'feel the love' has a pretty weird low end, i never noticed it until playing it on just a particular sound setup that highlighted the bass

j., Thursday, 17 October 2019 00:54 (one year ago) link

OK so the new Lindstrom album as a whole I think is a pretty minor thing but also really pleasant. Like taking a warm bath in analog synths. I had it on the other day while I was taking a walk and it was nice soundtrack music.

The first track is noodly rubbish imho, but the other three are beautiful. Might be the best thing he's done since Real Life Is No Cool.

does it look like i'm here (jon123), Thursday, 17 October 2019 16:01 (one year ago) link

this is lovely. the first track is great!

cheese canopy (map), Thursday, 17 October 2019 20:05 (one year ago) link

he's such a talented melodist, it's fun to hear him go in a more idk classical/new age direction. 'swing low sweet lfo' sounds like it could be the 'i am the center' comp, reminds me of the iasos track. it's all pretty 'noodly' tbh but i would rather describe it that quality as 'deep' and as something that has the promise to emerge and gain life through repeated listens.

cheese canopy (map), Thursday, 17 October 2019 20:11 (one year ago) link

on first listen this is just beguilingly good imo, very near the top of the new age / ambient / balearic revival of the last 15 years.

cheese canopy (map), Thursday, 17 October 2019 20:16 (one year ago) link

the promise to emerge and gain life through repeated listens.

Definitely been true for me. Things that just seemed formless the first time through take on texture and shape. Especially on that first track, which I really like.

there is a lot of tangerine dream pastiche on this but it's better than that sounds i think. right now i feel like there's a lot of unrealized potential here, like it points in a lot of different exciting directions at once? i'm not sure how or if it all gels but there's something simultaneously compelling and distancing about the harmonic drift that makes me want to keep listening to it.

cheese canopy (map), Friday, 18 October 2019 18:02 (one year ago) link

there's flashes of loveliness on this but it's just a little too freeform for me, indulgent where it could be refined

Jaga Jazzist remix is great but the Pirra remix is even better. I just prefer them in ecstatic disco mode to noodly Krautrock mode and using the Van Halen Jump chord progression is my kind of shamelessness.

Spotify Hipster Boyfriend decided I needed to hear the Pirra remix this morning, and holy hell, my algorithmic hipster hubbie, yes I do!

thank you! I knew it was reminding me of something but couldn't place it earlier.

II was def one of my favorite albums in 2009 but I haven't really listened to it since. Or anything else that came out around that time, come to think of it. No idea why.

Fully expect the new one to be killer if Martin 5000 is any indication

also i keep misreading this as "Lindstrom & Prins Thomas are shit"

My grandfather invited me to a cruise in the Caribbean back in 2006 and one of the few full albums on my ipod was their first album. It pretty much was the only thing I listened to for a week. It’s a precious album attached to good memories and sunny weather for me but I can’t remember when was the last time I played it.

I do remember there’s always something interesting up ahead... every time you’re about to think “well this loop doesn’t seem to be going anywhere...” they smash you with a resolution that skyrockets the whole thing to another level. It’s a trick they do in almost every track, sometimes twice per track iirc and it’s blissful if you have the patience for it.

They’ve both grown massively as producers/musicians, some of the charm from that debut has been traded for wit. Very excited to hear what’s next based on these remixes upthread and the new track.
